Leave of Absence Form Help

The Leave of Absence Form is available in MS Word format.  Although it may be completed by hand, we strongly encourage you to complete it electronically so that you can take advantage of the built in dropdown boxes.  Please do not enter paragraph returns or spaces, as this will cause the form to move onto 2 pages.

Once the form has been completed electronically, print it, have it signed and forward it to Human Resources or Faculty Relations. Please ensure all necessary signatures are provided, along with all applicable fields.  Missing information or signatures will result in paperwork being returned to the Department and/or Faculty and will delay the processing of the leave.

When complete, send this form to Faculty Relations (faculty leaves) or Human Resources (all other leaves).
